Great croissant

Same baker as in Luangprabang. Wished they serve simple Lao coffee as well as espresso base coffee. Tourist spot. Maybe too expensive for locals.

Nice French provincial ambiance, great fresh produce used in sandwiches, cakes and pastries. Great value for money. Wide French style menu to choose from. Highly recommended.

butter cruisant with caffe latte was good choice to start a day. But the other one in Luang Prabang disappointed me, not like this one in Vientiane :/(

The Laos coffee was strong and delicious and the croissant crisp and light. I loved this cafe, its great airconditioning and ambience. It's busy by 9am so if you can get in a bit earlier for breakfast that would be a good idea.

Banneton is one of Vientiane's oldest coffee houses with genuine French flavour, both in products and atmosphere. They offer the full range of simple meals, plenty of salads, they have a wonderful french-style bread culture with baguettes, croissants and the lot, and the staff are extremely friendly and relaxed even in hectic holiday season.

You can definitely find cheaper food in the area but this place serves quality food for the price. I had the "Le Picnic" roast beef baguette served with salad and it was a good feed. The beef was quite tasty.

i like Le Banneton a lot, but I much prefer the coffee, pastries and outdoor seating area at Pricco. I do really enjoy the Le Banneton Croque Monsieur I must say :-) fine place to eat and deserved of the good reviews of many.

Stopped in for coffee and baguette as had been told that they were both good. Limited choice of baguette so settled for panini which was average. Coffee was disappointing- too hot and watery - not what I was expecting from the reviews. Value still good when compared with Australia

My family prefer noodles and rice dishes for breakfast, but we wanted something more familiar and found Le Banneton. They have great croissants and coffee. We liked it better than JoMa. We had their full breakfast one day and it was also good. Not as cheap as noodle soup, but a very comfortable place with very nice croissants. Go early,... More
